In the new issue of Elle, Susan Sarandon talks about having a casting couch experience which is either her way of bragging about how pretty she was so clearly it was her fault or a testament to the old-timey Tinseltown tradition that’s the whole reason movies are even made in the first place. Via RadarOnline:
“It was not successful – for either of us,” Sarandon admits, when asked if she had ever had a casting-couch experience.
“I just went into a room, and a guy practically threw me on the desk. It was my early days in New York, and it was really disgusting. It wasn’t like I gave it a second though, it was so badly done.”
Of course, my favorite part of this whole story is that Susan Sarandon was only asked about having a casting couch experience because Kristen Stewart recently reminded everyone that you don’t score roles in this town without being mouth-sexed by the director and/or vice versa, so I see that popping up in celebrity interviews for at least the next year. Otherwise, this probably would’ve been an anecdote about quiche.
